– 1 pound fresh green beans, ends removed – 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil – 4 tablespoons unsalted butter – 8 oz baby bella mushrooms, sliced – 2 sprigs fresh thyme – 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour – ¾ cup heavy cream – ½ cup whole milk – 2 cloves minced garlic – ¼ cup grated parmesan – salt and pepper – 1 cup fried onions
